Blacks & Slave Mentality: Why Are We Still Allowing Ourselves to Be in Bondage?

How many of you black people out there respect white people more than blacks? I know they’re out there because I’ve met quite a few of them.

Personally, I think black women have it worse than black men. I can’t tell you how many instances where I went to a front desk, and a black woman was behind the counter and reluctantly gave me service. But then a white woman comes in right behind me, and the black woman behind the counter jumps out of her chair with a smile on her face, and says “How may I help you?”

Really? You didn’t ask me that. When I walked in, I had to ask you to help me. My mother who owns her a business had black women come in and say, “I rather give my business to the white woman.” What the hell is that about?

There are two predominant black mind states: the “White people owe me something” mind state, and the “I owe white people something” mind state. That is the kind of woman that was behind the desk-the kind of woman that still wants to please the “master”.

Blacks used to teach their children to put on their best behavior around white people. They act a fool around black people, but when white people come by, they straighten up. This says a lot about what they think about their own race. The message is “whites are worthy of respect, but blacks are not.” This is why black people think it’s perfectly fine to treat other black people like trash.

It all boils down to how we feel about ourselves. When you think lowly of yourself, you treat others that look like you lowly as well. Women that feel like crap treat other women like crap. Blacks that feel like trash treat other blacks like trash. It’s very simple.

I blame black parents for this because they are responsible for what they teach their kids. They should teach their kids to feel great about themselves. Instead, they are teaching them to believe they are less than white people. They are continuing on that slave mentality. White people aren’t teaching us this-it’s now our people that are teaching us this. We are enslaving our own people.

When I was in school, I was called white for being able to speak well. I didn’t quite understand it at the time, but being able to speak well is something that blacks attribute to whites. They think that all educated people are white. This is exactly why black students are behind in school. We have a culture that believes that education is for white people-or the “masters”. Black people want to continue to be the dumb slaves that can’t read and write.

I don’t understand how we have created a culture where everyone is in a rut, and no one wants to get out. Everyone wants to keep living the same way they always lived-like a slave. What is it about that lifestyle that appeals to us? Oh, I know. The right to play the victim. When you think like a slave, you think that someone is always against you. You think you are being attacked all the time. This why so many of us are so freaking sensitive and “angry”. The snappy attitude comes from thinking that someone is f*cking with you, and you have to set them straight: “Oh, I don’t know who she think she talkin’ to. I don’t play that!” Does that sound familiar?

That’s having thin skin. You fly off the handle because you’re sensitive. Then you make excuses for it because you feel you are the victim.

Here are some words of encouragement. I don’t know how well it’s going to affect you, but it’s worth a try: You are just as worthy as any white person, and other black people are just as worthy too. Stop treating other black people like shit. When you do that, you are doing exactly what slave masters did many years ago-you are viewing black people as scum and thinking they are beneath you. And the sad thing about some of the people that do this is that they themselves aren’t in any position to think someone is beneath them in the first place. The women that didn’t want to give me service at the desk treated me like they were high and mighty, but they were not. They were lazy, fat, and unattractive. Yes, they were still worthy, but why act as if you’re better than someone when you’re not?

If you want to be somebody, then act like you’re somebody and treat other people the same way. How hard is that?
